'Nightmare' ends for man acquitted of sex crime charges

Being accused of a sex crime can destroy an individual's life in New Jersey. The charged individual can be alienated as their family, friends, employer and the community turn against them. No one in the community is quick to suspect that an individual alleging to be a victim of such a crime could be lying. However, the community is quick to issue condemning assumptions about the charged individual.

The defense attorney for one man that was charged with sex crimes asked the jury to free the charged man and his family of the nightmarish allegations. The attorney wanted the jury to clear the man's name from the soiling accusations issued by an individual classified as an "admitted liar."

The man in question was charged based on allegations that he sexually assaulted a teenage girl over a period of two years. The trial was emotional as the man maintained his innocence in these allegations. The jury returned a verdict of not guilty in all of the serious charges.

The judge in this sex crime trial says that the acquittal of all charges was issued following a lack of witnesses, and a doubt about the credibility of the accuser. Sex crime accusations are easily some of the most condemning charges that can be leveled against an individual in New Jersey, particularly if the accuser is less than 18 years old.

It is imperative to retain a skilled attorney to defend against the allegations if an individual in Ocean City or elsewhere in New Jersey finds themselves similarly accused.
